SDGs in our research

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.  

At Universiti Brunei Darussalam we recognise the critical role that universities must play in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our research community continues to make significant contributions to achieving the goals of sustainable development by increasing research activity aligned to the SDGs across all faculties and research institutions.
